Elegance, aggressiveness and above all innovation are the best words to describe this new work called SPORTSTER NIGHTCRAWLER. A Harley Davidson of customizer Francisco Ali Manen and his company Lord Drake Kustoms transformed in his motorcycle modification workshop in Malaga (Spain).


Fran Manen wanted to achieve with this custom Harley Sportster a bike transformation that was totally different from what had been seen so far. And this is the result: a custom bike that combines a mix of styles such as cafe racer with more classic elements such as some details of bobber bikes.


Of course this SPORTSTER NIGHTCRAWLER had to be elegant and, in this case, rather than classic or retro, it had to be sporty and aggressive. And to achieve this, elements such as the S&S dual inlet air filter, the keel or spoiler and the headlight accompanied by a small dome have been added.

The typical Harley belt and pulley drive has also been replaced with a Sportster chain, chainring and sprocket kit. Inverted tracker handlebar to give a more racing touch, along with the two minimalist fenders and custom side covers.

At the rear, in addition to the handcrafted license plate holder for Harley Davidson models, we highlight the combination of more modern elements such as air shocks, with more classic elements such as the bobber-style spring seat for Sportster.

The Koso odometer for Sportster models has been repositioned on the side, Motogadget LED turn signals have been installed on the handlebar ends, biltwell grips and to top it all off, a pair of fat-spoke wheels that mount a 180 tire on the rear.


Finally Lord Drake Kustoms has dressed this brutal custom Harley Davidson with a spectacular paint job in which they have combined gloss black, satin black and matte black with various details and pinstriping in gold.
